The call outs say the engine is gun metal..so be it! 

Engine block should be Blue-grey, Revell got a few colour call outs incorrect

Did they only use colors listed in the Revell paint series?  Could be.

Well the instruction sheet call out for the engine was metallic grey so it is an error on Revells part.

Why?found out the hard way ..had to use my Dremel and fine disc to cut a slot to allow the exhaust pipe access.Then I added a plastic plate!
